Cooking Class: Baking

It has been all too convenient to buy muffin and cake premixes. Little did I know, baking from scratch is pretty much a non-brainer.


Buttermilk biscuit



lemon cake

Lemon-poppy seed cake

cake glaze

The glaze is made of just powdered sugar and lemon juice.




Quiche with asparagus, leeks, garlic, shallots, sesame seed oil, and siracha. How does it taste? Actually, kinda bland. Need more siracha!

I have a recipe book about little cakes, which I've been cooking out of. I didn't realize how easy baking was, either, until I moved to Seattle and actually had a decent oven. Every time I baked in LA, I thought I was just a bad cook--when it really was my oven! I love the powdered sugar glaze...everything looks more professional with glaze. :)
